150-160 Kmph in the Honda City 1.3 goin from Mumbai to Nasik
150 kmph in the Corolla within Nasik city...this was after 10pm when the roads are deserted
110-115 kmph on a HH CBZ

All are speedo reads. Its my dream to go over the 100 mph mark but maybe i'll wait till i buy a car with my own money!

250 with a pillion taking pictures!! I know how thrilling 250 km/h in a car feels, must have had your heart in your mouth on a bike.

Very well-written experience, especially with the poor journalist not knowing what lied in store for him on a SBK. You know what, all those crappy car show presenters on TV should be taken for a pillion ride at 270 kph...That'll teach them to value machinery better.

Pretty good for a diesel SUV. How big is the engine...a 3 liter turbo-diesel?
